Hey five. I'm glad you're girls are perking up. I have some DD's that took some time to take off. Now they are growing like crazy. I think I should have gave them nutes early on. As soon as I fed them they took off
Thanks Mioutdoorsman, I found the same issue as you have a couple of grows ago. Since then have been precharging my coco with week 1 nutes and have had great results. I did the same thing this time but still had the slow growth so I'm a bit confused. Either way I'm glad they finally started to take offHey five. I'm glad you're girls are perking up.

If you're like me, once you try autos you will be hesitant to go back to photos. Good luck though mate, I hope they go well for youI started in fresh FFOF soil which is kinda hot to begin with. Started feeding them at 3 weeks. I waited a bit to long. It's my first try at auto's so I'm learning
Thanks Sky, you always have good advice.If it were me, I would mix up her own "special needs" feed and increase N just a tad. If she doesn't respond well after a considerable amount of time, especially when everything else is ideal, I would chalk it up to weak genetics or phenotype. From that point, it's then a matter of me being willing to see her through to the end or do I give her space to another contender?
Thanks Sky, you always have good advice.
Being that nutrients are still my weakest point of knowledge, any chance you could suggest how to increase N in my mix?
Do you think it looks heat stressed or is lacking light?
Thanks for the explination but I'm using Canna A+B as base nutes which are meant to be mixed at a 1-1 ratio, so I'm not quite sure how achieve what you describe. Sorry if I'm being thick lol.If nute A is 1-2-3, nute B is 2-2-2 and nute C is 3-2-1, and the schedule calls for 1ml/liter of each, well maybe step up nute C to 1.5ml/liter, and everything else stays to what you would normally mix. You just want to identify which of your main nutes has the highest N number, and bump it up. Keep in mind that manufacturers recommend we use full strength, but we canna growers know our ranges, so we dial each back accordingly. It is this "schedule" I am referring to, so simply augment it to emphasize the particular nutrient you want to increase, in this case N. You may also feel to use this strategy with your supplements as they also have NPK values.
The heat to light issue, well I assume you're already doing your best and it seems your best is good enough for the other plants you're growing and have grown so the logical conclusion is your best course of action. Don't sacrifice the herd to save a lamb. Do your best to bring the lamb back to the herd, but you're a sheppard and need to focus on your herd. Some heads will disappear from time to time, that's part of the business I suppose.

Each plant sits under its own LED so I can change the height of one light without affecting the other plant too much I think
Thanks Dastri, I appreciate all opinionsHey there. I'm still learning myself, so take my advice with a grain of salt but going to take a shot anyways. On the skunk, the stems look way too dark. I had the same problem with a few of mine when I started. For me, it was over watering and Mag deficiency that was causing my problem. I still have a little purple on the top of some of my stems but most of it has cleared up with a bit reduced watering and CalMag added to the feeding. Good luck getting her to perk up. Glad to see you have one that is looking healthy at least. I'll keep a watch on your grow.
Thanks mate, I appreciate the advice. I'll have a look as see about the colours you mention. But when ive had MAG deficiency in the past it was seen clearly on the leaves but I'm also still learning so I'll see what I can findIs the underside of the stem green? My understanding is if it is, it's Mag deficiency. If it isn't, then it's water locked. But like I said, i'm still learning too. I could be wrong.
